    I just realized I put in the wrong direction. It was on 101 Bayshore after all. The 101 St. Laurent would have went the other direction. I still haven't seen one on that route at that time though.

    6657 travelling out of service on its way to Caldwell/Medford to start a 14 St. Laurent trip at 18:13.

    That's not a breakdown. The bus looks like it's simply idling for its next trip. If it was a breakdown, all the lights would be off including the blue lights beside the destination sign.

    5071 was on 85 Bayshore on Carling/Cambridge at 15:06 and was laying up. I never see 40 foot buses doing this trip as lots of students use this trip to get their next bus. 6592 was on 14 St-Laurent turning onto Parkdale at 3:14. I usually see lots of 40 foot buses on this route at this time. 8053 was on 101 Bayshore at Carling/Parkdale at 15:15. I usually see Inveros on this route, rarely any DDs.

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    It's not a duplicate. This thread was originally used to discuss what OC would get for 40' buses in the future. It's only recently that it turned into a Nova thread. Keeping it separate will suffice.

    6681 was on 6 Greenboro at around 19:40 on Bank near Cash Money. 5009 was laying up at Caldwell/Medford waiting to go on a 14 St. Laurent trip at 19:10.

    Video Games!

    The original PS3s were notorious for overheating and dying after a few years, especially the PS2 compatible ones. They shoved so much crap into one design that the system couldn't be cooled down effectively. They literally have a PS2 built into them (both PS2 CPU and GPU combined onto one chip), as well as four USB ports, Compact Flash slot, SD card slot, native PSP memory card port, as well as Super Audio CD support. They took every one of these out with the introduction of the slim models. They also had processors that produce a lot of heat. I was playing mine the other day and had to turn it off because it was a hot day and the PS3 was just adding to the heat in the room. My cousin had the same exact model as mine and it died back in 2011 or 2012.

    I was on 4419 running on 101 St. Laurent this morning and the bus has a driver's shield. 6371 was on 103 Place D' Orleans passing by Carling and Sherwood at 15:10. 6383 was also on 14 Carlington at 08:08 at Summerville/Merivale, then was on 14 St. Laurent turning onto Parkdale from Carling at 08:20 (saw while riding 4419).
